In-Kennel Obedience Training
We understand you have a busy life! We understand you need a dog that is trained. We can do it for you!
This is a 3-week program in which your dog stays with us during the entire training process! During your dog’s stay, we work on manners and basic obedience, such as
• How to be approached without jumping on people!
• How to walk on leash comfortably without pulling.
• All basic obedience commands; heel - sit - stay - come when called - report to front - finish and return to heel position - down - and re-sit.
This program includes boarding, the training, a send home lesson, and follow up lessons.
Puppies must be 16 weeks old with a Rabies vaccine. Please view the boarding page for more information on vaccines and what to bring.
The send home lesson is at least an hour long private lesson with the trainer. The trainer will demonstrate that the dog knows the commands and show you how to reinforce the training. This is set up by you and the trainer at the end of the three weeks.
The follow-up lesson is set up about 2 weeks after the send home. The follow-up lessons ensure that the training is going well and works on advanced training such as distance control and off-leash training.
Price depends on the age and temperament of the dogs and not specific to the breed.
